Should I give a pharmaceutical company access to my medical records?

I suffer from gallstone pancreatitis and the company who makes my birth control wants access to my records. It’s a generic drug. Should I try and get my medical bills covered by the company as there is a connection between the drug and the disease?

I see no reason based upon what you have written for you to provide access to your confidential medical records to the pharmaceutical company that you have written about. Assuming you have a personal injury, I suggest that you consult with a personal injury attorney sooner rather than later.
